Now aren't you sorry you asked ;)?

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!

It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,

yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

Proverbs 6:6-8

You are a busy lady! Is the photo bounty from your garden? It's beautiful...love all the colors!

Mrs. Mac said...

Yes. The veggies are from our garden this summer.

Kathryn said...

No, not sorry you shared, but wow! I so wish i had energy to do these kind of things.

I'm sure you'll be glad of the fruits of your labors later. :)

Amrita said...

Very hard working Mrs Mac and the veggies are lovely.

Pat said...

What a beautiful picture of God's bounty and your hard word!
It's been a very busy season indeed, but how rewarding to see the fruits (or veggies) of your labor.
Once again I'm left with lots of green tomatoes. In the newspaper they go and then in the basement!

Felisol said...

I am so impressed over your achievements.
Impressed and a bit envious. I know how wonderful those tomatoes must taste!
I am lucky though, I have a first cousin with a great farm on Jaeren, where my mother was born.
She let me buy potatoes, radishes and sweet turnips for a third of what I must pay in the grocery store.
It's so unfair really, the farmer has all the work, the great food chains have the profit. Two of the richest men in Norway have built two competing, but dominating food stores.

I think I'll stick to my herbs. They are not so demanding as vegetables. My apple tree has about twenty apples left.
Serina is home this evening for four days. She can have them!

We are rich having such meaningful lives, don't you think, Mrs. Mac.
Your list of 16 blessings is huge.
I often think that just where I am now, is the best place to be.
Old enough to have finished my professional carrier(I do hope that is the right expression), but still young enough to enjoy life's many opportunities and choices.
In the morning I pray, "Let this day be our best day,"and in the evening I thank for the many blessings.
Just now Gunnar is at the airport, picking up Serina. I am so looking forwards to hugging her hard and long.

I feel a tad envious because it sounds heavenly. I am in a slump right now, be it from being sick or the thought that Charlie is going to be moving out soon, I don't know. I need a vacation, a boost or something! Sometimes, good hard work is its own remedy for what ails a person!

Jim said...

Those look good, M&M! I will have to go to Kroger's this afternoon! I get mine from a can, not the ground.
BTW, you have a few of those on your list more than once. Yes, it makes it longer, but is it really playing by the rules of counting?
We used to divide candy that way,
'one or me,
one for you,
one for me,
one for her,
one for me,
one for you,
one for me,
one for ... '
At least I got my share. :-)

Hey, my word verification is:

I glad you have been busy with such important activities - with no time to comment on the blog carnival. Ahem.

I have another contest coming up - with a slant towards people who comment often.

Looks like you have some new blog-friends from the carnival - each of them a prize in my book.

Blessed weekend,

You are So industrious! Good for you! I like Felisol's comment about today being our best day...no matter the chores to be done or the fun awaiting...may today be our best day!
